The new film adaptation of Stephen King’s “It” has been in production for sometime with various key members of the cast remaining either unannounced or unphotographed beyond Bill Skarsgard in full Pennywise the Clown costume.
Today though, an Instagram user named Upreeladam has shot video (from a distance admittedly) of at least one of the film’s The Losers Club members – our young heroes of the flashback scenes in the story.
The video includes the apparent first footage of The Leper, one of It’s forms, chasing Eddie Kaspbrak (Jack Grazer) who first encounters It under the porch of the house on 29 Neibolt Street and can kill plants with the touch of its hand. It’s a scene that wasn’t included in the previous 1990 mini-series adaptation.
Andy Muschetti (“Mama”) helms the new take which also stars Jaden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Owen Teague and Jeremy Ray Taylor. The film has set a September 8th 2017 release.
